skillet chicken caprese


Skillet Chicken Caprese has without a doubt become one of our favorite easy weeknight dishes – yet it’s also very worthy of weekend appearances and great for casual entertaining.  The great thing about this dish is that it goes from stovetop to oven in one skillet which makes cleanup a breeze.  Just make sure that your skillet is overproof (many are up to 450°F) and always grab that potholder before removing the skillet from the oven.  I photographed this recipe with the chicken in the skillet, hot from the oven, to convey the feeling of  serving in a family-style way and oh wow had to remind myself NOT to touch the skillet handle as I styled the shot.

Are you dining à deux?  Go ahead and cook two chicken breasts but there’s no need to change anything else in the recipe except that you’ll use less mozzarella cheese.  You’ll just end up with a saucier dish and that’s never a bad thing in our house.  And speaking of cheese, I use the bocconcini size fresh mozzarella from Bel Gioioso – it works and melts wonderfully.  And another addition if you’re cooking two chicken breasts – add some sliced sweet onion when you add the wine.  Yum
